President Joe Biden’s administration wants the legal authority for military counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan “if necessary” in light of the withdrawal of U.S. forces and the Taliban’s victory over the U.S.-backed government in Kabul.

“We need to look to make sure that we have all the authorities that we would need for any potential contingency, including the reemergence, as a threat, of al Qaeda,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing. “If we don’t have those authorities, we should get them — whether that means re-looking at those authorizations or writing new ones, which I think would be the most appropriate thing to do, if necessary. We need to look at that.”

The article goes on to state the following:

That recognition could complicate a broad political debate about the legal basis for the so-called “forever war” that Biden hoped to end by withdrawing U.S. forces from Afghanistan. Blinken emphasized in a Monday hearing that “the terrorist threat has metastasized” beyond Afghanistan, but U.S. intelligence officials acknowledge that al Qaeda stands to gain from the Taliban’s resurgence.

  1. Seems to me we might have jumped out of the frying pan into the fire. All because Biden and his cohorts were in to much of a hurry to make a name for themselves.

  2. Talk about hollow balls! You drop the ball in Afghanistan, then you defund Egypt and then you tell us no one was left behind, then it maybe 100, then fly out 2 aircraft with americans, then tell us there’s still 100 americans left behind because its fluid, and now you want reauthorization to take troops in to take out terrorists! Let us give a clear response – “This is your clusterf#@k and botched mission, you have lied to us over and over again, you have silenced the President and now your mutinous general wants authorised control. No damn way, at least until you and Atkins are impeached and Miley is court-martialed.”

  3. “If we don’t have those authorities, we should get them — whether that means re-looking at those authorizations or writing new ones, which I think would be the most appropriate thing to do, if necessary. We need to look at that.” And while we’re at it let’s put in some new language that will let us circumvent the Constitution and or go around Congress when we want to go after American Citizens that we deem domestic terrorist. Yeah sounds crazy but I don’t trust anybody in the O’Biden administration.

  4. Those powers are already assigned to the “Commander in Cheif”. Who is trying to get those powers now? We have a Constitution and laws. Democrats need to start following them.
